YorkIdeas on the Green talks
YorkIdeas, at the University of York, is teaming up with Angel on the Green – a community-owned enterprise – to bring ideas, research and engagement into York’s neighbourhoods.
On selected Monday evenings, a speaker from the University of York will set out a big idea in conversation with anyone who wants to come along and hear their reactions and ideas.
The seven-part series – free to attend for all – will explore some of the most pressing challenges our society is facing and the ideas and research that aim to solve them.
